Abstract : JASON was asked to assess U.S. capabilities for estimating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in support of monitoring international agreements. In particular, JASON was asked: (1) What are the current and future capabilities for estimating GHG emissions using direct measurements of GHG atmospheric concentrations? (2) How do direct measurements compare to indirect (proxy) methods for monitoring emissions? (4) What are the capabilities for estimating emissions from non-cooperating countries i.e. those for which access to in country measurements is impeded or denied?
